Solukhumbu Black comes from one of the highest gardens in the world, grown only 45 miles from the Mount Everest base camp in Nepal. Grown in the shadow of Sagarmatha (what Nepalis call Mt. Everest), this rare, high-grown black tea comes from a Sherpa family. It is tightly rolled – much like an oolong – and has floral notes with hints of cherry, eucalyptus and espresso. Because it's so tightly rolled, it doesn't take much to make a strong, tasty cup! Can be steeped multiple times.

About Our Nepalese Tea

Grown in the Himalayan foothills, Nepalese tea is extraordinary. However, years of industry underdevelopment, coupled with a decade-long civil war, served to stunt Nepal's economy. Development of tea farming in the country suffered as a result. Since the signing of a peace accord in 2006, Nepal's tea growers have sought to share their product with more and more drinkers around the world.

Our Nepalese tea comes from small farms near Mount Everest to others in Ilam and Panchthar, a region just 45 miles west of Darjeeling, at an altitude of between 5,000 and 6,000 feet.
